Maui Springtail

Maui Springtail
Kaanapali, Maui County, Hawaii, USA
December 14, 2019

Moved from Hawaiian bugs.

Moved from ID Request.

Moving this Observation
Thanks-- though wouldn't this be more likely to be identified under "springtails"? I assume that's the section Frans checks, not this one.

Hawaii isn't covered by BugGuide... we generally don't make a lot of effort to identify these specimens. If the submission had come from some other place outside of North America, it would have been frassed. Hawaiian submissions are placed here, in case at some future date BG decides to expand its coverage area.

You're free to move the image to Collembola if you like; however, it will need to be moved back here after an ID is made.

Moving it
I think I'll do that... Not quite sure how to move it though!

You'll find...
...instructions here. It's good to know how to move your own images, so give it a try. If you run into trouble, let me know and I'll move it for you.

I think I got it! Thanks for that link.
